WARNING! Several images seen below give away spoilers for several major plot points in the film but are necessary to show the weapon used!
The following firearms were used in the film Assassins:
Ruger Mk II
Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) and Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas) both use integrally suppressed Ruger Mk II pistols. Bain comments to Rath that he began to carry the "Ruger .22" once he found out that it was the same weapon Rath used in his assassinations. Electra (Julianne Moore) also uses Rath's Ruger on several occasions. It is identified as a MK II since the receiver has beveled cuts and MK I's did not. Mark I's came with fixed & adjustable sights. Mk I's also all have a "european release" for the magazine also known as a "heel release"., The Rugers used in the film are clearly Mk II's as they have the beveled cut receivers (where you pull the "action" back to cock it.. -- The standard Ruger .22 has always been available with fixed (standard model)& adjustable sights (target model). It could be a MKI or MKII. -- All of the Ruger pistols are MK II if they have the slide release - and they are not integrally suppressed they have screw on cylinders. As with most movies there are many inconsistencies and both Mark I's & Mark II's were probably used throughout the whole movie.

Remington Model 700
Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) uses a suppressed and scoped Remington Model 700 in 1980 to shoot at his former partner, Nicolai.
Remington 700PSS with Leupold Mark 4 scope and Harris bipod, in .300 Win Mag. This information is incorrect as Remington did not offer a model 700 PSS in 1980 which would correspond with the dates stated in the 1995 movie. Rath states he took Nicolai 15 years prior, which would make it impossible to use a 700 PSS model. However it is true that Remington did produce the Model 700 in 1980. Also Leupold did not offer a Mark 4 (LRT) in 1980, so it is impossible to use this particular scope. It is the Hi-Lux "Camputer" model scope shown as the memory flashback from 1980. Hi-Lux & Leatherwood scopes were common military scopes from the time period of 1980. It is a classic case of lack of information and forethought or using firearms and accesories and simply not thinking that the viewing public would notice or pay attention.
Rath constructs his rifle in the San Juan hotel room.
Rath aims his rifle. *Note that Rath's scope is the same as Bain's later in the movie, the Hi-Lux 2.4-10x44 power "Camputer" ART Tactical Rifle scope with the one exception. With Rath, the "elevation" turret on the top of the scope has it's cap removed. Apparently for corrections in aiming or point of impact. It to is mounted on a "quick release" mount as is Miguel Bains rifle configuration.
Rath prepares to fire at Nicolai as he leaves the San Juan bank. Stallone is shown holding the rifle in a "right-handed" posistion. It is well known that Stallone is left handed.
When Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) is walking one of his marks, an ex-hitman named Ketcham (Muse Watson), through a forest. Later, Rath ejects the magazine out of the suppressed PP and hands it to Ketcham, stating "it's chambered". Ketcham then uses his own Walther PP to kill himself, saying "goodbye old friend" before shooting himself in the head.
Walther PP - .32 ACP or .380 ACP.

Claridge Hi-Tec/Goncz GC
Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas) uses a suppressed Goncz GC carbine in the cemetery to kill Alan Branch (Steve Kahan) at the funeral. During his escape from police custody, he retrieves the weapon (which is oddly still loaded after his arrest) and uses it while in the taxi with Rath. (It may also be a Claridge LEC9).

Several of Alan Branch's bodyguards (David Dollase and Jim Graham) fire Beretta 92FS pistols at Bain after he takes out Alan Branch in the cemetery. A male Interpol agent in the hotel (Dave Young) that Bain assassinates in the hallway also has a Beretta, albeit suppressed.

Remington Model Seven
Miguel Bain (Antonio Banderas) uses an integrally suppressed Remington Model 7 compact tactical rifle with a Leatherwood ART scope and thumb cut stock while waiting for Robert Rath in San Juan. Electra (Julianne Moore) eventually gets her hands on the rifle and fumbles to use it, but manages to take a few shots at Bain. She later gives it to Robert Rath (Sylvester Stallone) who disables it by removing the bolt. This rifle differs from the classic Remington 700 action in that the receiver is shorter than a standard length and takes shorter but still powerful cartridges. It is designed to be a tactical bolt action rifle that is compact and can be easily fired from minimal cover. The 'sportsman' version is the Predator and CDL and is promoted as a rifle for "thick cover hunting."
Remington Model Seven Compact Rifle with Integral Suppressor and customized thumb cut stock - .223 Remington. Photographed for IMFDB by MPM2008 from his own Movie Gun Collection. These rifles come in 17 Rem Fireball, .204 Ruger (which the two previous calibers were not availible when this movie was made), .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, .243 Win.)
Bain stands at the window with his Remington Model Seven.
Bain aims at the bank in San Juan. Topped with a Hi-Lux "Camputer" ART 2.4-10x44 scope (with automatic range find), which is the same that Stallone used when he "took" his Russian friend. It is mounted to the rifle with a "quick-release" mount where it can be removed from the rifle and replaced with the scope still being accurate or returning to "zero".
Bain practices aiming at the bank. His extra bullets are visible on his sleeve.
Bain anxiously waits for Rath, his target, to leave the bank.
Note the push button floor plate release as also seen on an Interarms X.
Bain's finger on the trigger. Note the bolt knob looks very similar to that of the Winchester Model 70. This rifle may not be a Model Seven. There are several "bolt knobs" styles one can purchase and replace the factory one. So one cannot determine what brand of rifle it is based upon the bolt handle.
Electra finds Bain's rifle laying by the window.
The guard at the San Juan bank carries a suppressed MAC-10. Why a bank guard needs a suppressed submachine gun is never explained.
